i made this recipe as it looked and sounded very interesting... and i love soya sauce... so i decided to make it... however i added brown sugar instead of the sugar substitute as i didn't have any...also i added a few drops of sesame oil just to give it that nutty Asian flavor... and trust me on this... the taste was divine... Happy cooking...

Cucumber, tomatoes and spring onions mixed with a mildly spiced soya dressing. Healthy and made with zero oil.
